    Dear Enrique Iglesias, Thank You For All The Work You've Done Contributing To My Sexual Awakening

    Enrique Iglesias made me gay(er).

    MTV

    ...and any guy who was ever wearing a Speedo are all little things that contributed to my gayness.

    But, for me, the biggest contributing factor was actually Enrique Iglesias.

    Side note: I also came outta the womb flaming.

    You see, growing up gay, I always appreciated Enrique's arms.

    I appreciated the side of his face.

    I appreciated his general being and aura (I'm really into vibes lately).

    I could ignore his tragic/insane early 2000s style because he would do this thing where he randomly lifted his shirt exposing his torso.

    Really, early 2000s fashion was awful but, excuse me while I get poetic, beneath it was beauty.

    Yes, even in this bucket hat I WOULD.

    BUT REALLY, it all started with the "Be With You" and "Escape" music videos.

    So, thank you, Enrique.

    Thank you for this gorgeous CD cover I would casually and secretly admire in FYE.

    Thank you for always taking off your shirt.

    Thank you for wearing beanies with tank tops.
